ASD Mobile 3.0 for iPhone and iOS Devices to Be Released Ahead of Schedule

This is an exciting time for Apple users as many people are receiving the new iPhone 6 this week. ASD – Answering Service for Directors is excited to announce that the company just submitted ASD Mobile 3.0 to the iTunes store today. The app was released ahead of schedule to meet the needs of clients now using iOS 8.

The newly enhanced version of ASD’s award-winning app will introduce a fresh look and a new slide out menu that allows directors to maneuver through the app quickly. Clients will notice a new home page when launching the app, which summarizes account activity. The company has also added a First Call section, allowing clients to download or print First Call forms.

On-call directors often unintentionally give out their cell phone numbers. ASD is excited to introduce a new app feature called Mobile FH™ that allows directors to display the funeral home’s phone number as the caller ID when dialing from their cell phone. For directors who have added ASD’s new Live Chat feature to their website, ASD Mobile 3.0 can send a First Chat Alert™ the moment a specific type of chat session is initiated. Using the company’s patent-pending First Chat Connect™, directors can then take control of the chat in progress.

ASD Mobile 3.0 includes many of ASD’s new website features as well, including the ability to leave message notes for other employees. Clients can create an on-call schedule, add information about the funeral home’s local establishments, mark numbers for Solicitor Shield blocking, pay their ASD bill, update the account’s password and more.

“We appreciate all of the funeral directors whose feedback helped us to enhance ASD Mobile 3.0 with new features,” says ASD’s Chief Technology Officer, Martin Czachor, Jr. “Along with always providing compassionate care, funeral professionals expect out-of-the-box thinking from ASD. Our new app is a perfect example of our commitment to innovation.”

ASD Mobile 3.0 will be available on iTunes once Apple completes its approval process. The company plans to develop ASD Mobile 3.0 for Android over the coming months. To learn more about ASD Mobile 3.0 or to share feedback, please call 800-868-9950 or email
